Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over solving for single valuable equations as well as over her first midterm from the semester."
"Today I worked with the student on her algebra. She's working on inequalities. It's also great to see her focus going up and minor mistakes decreasing."
"This was my first session with the student. She is taking algebra and they have been focusing on solving equations, specifically, those with variables on two sides, and those which require finding a common denominator and cross multiplying. The class has also been focusing on applying equations to solve word problems. We covered solving inequalities and applying those to solve world problems, as well. We reviewed the three sections that were on her Wednesday test. We spent a little time focusing on finding common denominators, and after a little practice she was much more comfortable with that skill. Overall, she is skilled with arithmetic and competent at solving equations. She was able to solve the word problems by herself as well. She knew exactly how the test would be formatted, so I created a practice test with the same format, and she performed at an A level. I suggested she study a little more on her own. Our review was complete and productive."
"We reviewed multiplication/ division of fractions and went over addition/ subtraction and finding the least common denominator for fractions containing variables. She has a test today on the subject. She also did very well with this topic. We mostly reviewed and I answered remaining questions she had about simplification rules."
"I specifically went over the first 20 problems from the student's worksheet. I then reviewed concepts with her that her mother had wanted me to go over with her. This included slope, negative exponents, and the greatest common factor and least common multiples of integers and monomials. I screenshotted all of the concepts we went over and am forwarding them to her. She is a really good student and a quick learner."
"The student is primarily working on statistics and scatterplots. First, we reviewed any questions within his material that he had up to the scatterplot section to make sure he had a good foundation of understanding to comprehend the information. He also was working on applying LSRL to scatterplots, and he understood the material within this section. He worked through associating different variables, other than x and y, in an equation to the graphical analysis. Again, he quickly grasped the concept of what a variable represents and had no trouble afterward. He had absolutely no problem with focus and was very interested in resolving problems and understanding the material. He was very excited when he could comprehend the material fully. I am definitely excited to continue to work with him and with his enthusiasm for learning math."
